Editorial Reviews


American historians have neglected the study of postwar French intellectual and cultural life for nearly twenty years. . . . This book is a breath of fresh air. I couldn't let go of it. (Marie-Pierre Le Hir, Professor and Chair, Department of French and Italian, University of Arizona)

After the Deluge promises to be an important book in the field of French and Francophone Studies. (Aurelian Craiutu, Indiana University, Bloomington, Assistant Professor, Department of Political Science)

a valuable work and a useful read. (H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online, March 2008)

Instead, the book is successful in presenting an alternative picture of the postwar French intellectual landscape, rich in details and carefully researched. (Stephanie B. Martens, University of Alberta H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online)

These essays will challenge preconceptions and offer new vantage points from which to assess contemporary French thought. Recommended. (CHOICE)
